Winter Park Resort with Zeb and Soapy: Winter of 2015

Today, I Zeb the Duck and Soapy Smith Duck, went to Winter Park Resort.

We are here!

This resort is so much more that just a ski resort.   Leaving the parking lot we decide to ride the Village Cabriolet.

This free sky ride takes us to the village.

We love riding over the snow

From the sky ride we see the lanes for humans to ride in big inner tubes.

And look at this: another moving sidewalk to carry humans and tubes to the top for another ride.

Easy way to return to the top

This moving sidewalk is even enclosed.  Extra protection for rainy or snowy days. What a great idea!   Arriving in the village, we like this chair made from skis.

This wagon, and others, are for humans to carry tired children, tubes, skis snowboards, etc.

That is really convenient!   Isn’t this Coca Cola Bear just perfect?

Our friend!

We love him.   Snowboarders need a safe place to leave their snowboards while they rest, eat or shop.

Remember we are in the mountains in the winter and it is snowy and cold.

This fire pit feels nice, so warm and cozy.   This skating pond is wonderful for beginners.

Humans can ride on these, hold on to them for balance, or give the little humans a ride.   There are also experienced skaters on this pond.

Maybe some time we can ice-skate.

There are so many more things to show you at the village at Winter Park Resort.   We will have more pictures tomorrow, even showing you some skiers and snowboarders.    See you tomorrow at Winter Park Resort.

The Rink at Belmar with the Colorado Traveling Ducks

I, Zeb the Duck, have a great idea for you during this Holiday season.   Soapy Smith Duck, our Alaska cousin, Eider Duck, and I, Zeb the Duck, went to Belmar shopping area in Lakewood, Colorado.

We didn’t come to shop.   We came for The Rink.   The Rink is an outside ice skating area for humans.   Look at the humans having a great time on ice skates.

Again, we would love to be humans.   The area is decorated for Christmas.

See the decorations over the street, the Christmas tree and all the magical lights.   The lights are magical when it is dark, but we were there this afternoon, so the lights were not turned on yet.  These white trees decorated some streets here.

During the winter, we still have nice sunny days, so head out to The Rink.   We think it will be open through late January.  This is the sign explaining the hours and rates for skating.

See you at Belmar soon.

See you at Belmar soon.

We hope you come to Belmar to ice skate, or any ice skating rink near you.   Enjoy this winter activity.   We would if we had ice skates to fit our duck feet.
